In the back, it has ideas that would be useful for a lay pastor (someone like me who is occasionally called on to speak/perform a wedding, etc.). For example, if ever called on to do a funeral, there is a page or so covering some ideas. While a full-time pastor might find this section a bit lacking, I liked the brevity, but also the fact that it causes you to think through some points that a non-full time pastor could likely miss.
I liked the color maps (while for me, more is better as "a picture is worth a thousand words"), they still helped paint the picture of the middle east. I also appreciated the two ribbons for book marking and how the Bible lays open nicely and naturally.
Having used numerous smaller Bibles (with much smaller fonts), I was ready for a change. While I didn't want to go as large as with the "wide margin" Bibles or ones with really large font, this one was a good size upgrade without feeling bulky (It still maintains a "slim-line" quality about it) and there is enough space for me on each page to add a few notes of my own (if I have a good pen and write small/neat).
If I were to change anything to incorporate things I liked with the other Bibles I tried, I would have preferred the words of Jesus in Red--I'm just more used to seeing that particular layout, I also think the concordance was a bit skimpy, but possibly enough to get by on. (I was actually looking for a Bible without too much in the way of cross-referencing as I'm at the place where I'd rather be led by the Spirit than just follow someone else's train of thought.)
So while it may not be a true full-time "minister's Bible," it is a perfect fit for me.
And, due to the more limited selection of quality leather Bibles available in the NKJV, this is the best I found.
Lastly, the concordance is skimpy at best: not a solid one like you'd expect in a "Minister's Bible." I would have preferred less ministry helps in favor of a more extensive concordance. (Both the updated MacArthur NKJV Study Bible and the Baptist Study Edition have a much better concordance--identical between the two.)
Although this text is well made and a nice size to handle, I rated it only a 4 because the text is somewhat small and crowded to read, no room for notes, and a lackluster concordance.
In some ways, I'm surprised they consider this a "Minister's Bible" since it is not well suited for preaching (IMHO) because of its paragraph format and crowded text layout.
